Who is Felix?

Rap name Felix.  Real name Chris Wilbourn.

This is a crazy world and I’ll be the first to admit I don’t understand a bit of it.   I do know these things.  I was born and raised in St. Paul primarily by my mom.   I have a brother.  Just one.  Isn’t that enough.  I love all things music.  Except country.  I love cars.  I really love cars.  I co-manage a team of drifters (race car drivers) called TMF Opposition so if you read this blog and keep wondering why you see the same cars over and over again, it’s probably them.  I have a band called Heiruspecs.  We have been together for over a decade and I feel pretty damn old as a result.

Growing up in St. Paul I was blessed to meet a lot of different people and do a lot of different things.  I went to Central HS and there is a huge population of Hmong, Black, Viet, White, and HUMAN people.  I think I learned more by going to school than I ever did IN school.  (does that make sense?).  In school I met up with a bunch of music fans who were into partying and we started a crew called Mode1.  Honestly, I was inducted.  It was allready running.  Mode1 basically threw rap style house parties.  Sweet.  We branched out into my second real musical love shortly thereafter.  Dance Music.   This time under the name Family WERKS, we planned, promoted, and executed raves at the height of the scene here in the St. Paul/Minneapolis area.  I have been totally enamored with dance music ever since we became a part of that scene.  By some poeples standards, we were gangsters and ass holes.  I just think we had the business sense not to mix PLUR with fun.  Nothing personal.   All the while, I was working to establish Heiruspecs.  Just google it.  Or go to http://www.heiruspecs.com as that’s a pretty obvious place to start.  So.  Rap – Dance Music – Friends – Family.  Yes.

There are other loves in my life. From an early age I immediately gravitated toward cars. They’re shiny. i used to want a lowrider really bad. In fact, I still plan on having one eventually. My first car was a 1990 lincoln towncar. It was dope. My second car was an 89 Nissan 240sx with a little stuff done to it. When I owned that car I started meeting the people who whould eventually form into TMF Opposition. (www.tmfopposition.com) and we still do shit to this day with these funny japanese cars. I just sold my truck. Now for the first time in a long time, I am without wheels. I bought a rad bike. I have a bus pass. It gets me there.

Maybe the most significant love in my life is named Eboun.  She will smurk at me when she reads this so I’ll keep it short.  We met as she was in school and I was a deadbeat back in the year 2000.  It seems so long ago doesn’t it.  She has repeatedly told me that I am supposed to act single in my online activities.  Whatever.  Love you Eboun!

What the hell am I doing?  I am not sure.  I am open to suggestions allways.  Heiruspecs is on the verge of releasing our 5th album and I am working on some other musical projects.  I am a daydreamer and sometimes dreams do manage to tru-ify themselves.   If you took the time to read this then please take the time to drop me a line.  Comment on my blog or hunt me down some other way.  Just don’t stalk me.  I stalk back.  Not good for anyone…
